As 2015 approaches an end, Temel Gaskets has taken time to reflect on the company’s accomplishments and set new goals for 2016. 2015 proved to be a productive and exciting year for Temel Gaskets, beginning with an investment in manufacturing for an expanded product line and new production facility. In January, Temel Gaskets attended Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week in Las Vegas, Nevada, followed by the EQUIP Auto expo in Algeria. In March, Temel Gaskets attended the Mid America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky for the first time, and also attended Automechanika Chicago, Automechanika Mexico City PAACE, and Automechanika Middle East. Temel Gaskets exhibited at MIMS Automechanika Moscow, Automechanika Shanghai, and AAPEX.
Tunc Kip, Director of Business Development at Temel Gaskets, was honored by the Auto Care Association as part of their 2015 Next Step program where he received a scholarship to participate in Leadership Days, a program organized by YANG and AWDA that gives participants an inside look into the functions of the Auto Care Association. Tunc accompanied a delegation from the Auto Care Association that visited Istanbul, Turkey.
Victor Tapia was one of seven scholarship recipients from AWDA. The scholarship allowed him to intern at Temel Gaskets USA, which led to him becoming a long term member of Temel’s Atlanta team. Temel Gaskets USA continued to grow with new members, increasing by 60% at the end of the year.
Temel hosted the first regional Atlanta meet-up for YANG, giving young professionals in the automotive industry a platform to network and make new business contacts. Later in the year, Tunc Kip hosted a webinar for YANG called, The Philosophy of Problem Solving, that discussed the Six Sigma problem solving technique. Temel participated in a 5 part series of the Six Sigma practices specifically designed for the automotive industry. Temel Gaskets became a member of the Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association where they hope to make valuable contributions to the organizations and other member companies.
We are excited about pursuing new opportunities and building stronger client relationships in 2016. Temel Gaskets wishes you and your family a happy and prosperous new year.
